Question about Samsung HL-R5078W 50" HDTV
Is the wheel replaceable and where would i find one? i took the lamp out and it looks fine. i see the fan that cools the lamp. and the sound seems like its coming from behind the fan and i have no clue how to get behind that.
Sorry it took so long to get back to you. i could get you the part# if you need. I just need the mod. #. as for getting at it its on the optical block. if you take the back cover off the TV you'll see two screws holding the metal frame to the bottom of the TV. take them out and the whole chassis will slide out. you need to be careful. there will be a couple of wire connecters that will have to be unplugged (some of them may strip easily). once you get the optical block out the color wheel will be right in the middle. follow the thin ribbon strip(1/4'') to the wheel. thwere should be four screws holding it in. lift it sraight up(notice the ruber gasket make sure it is set correctly when you replace the wheel). be very careful when putting the new wheel in place as you can tell it is fragile.
good luck hope this helps
